WATCH: Jim Montgomery discusses Finlay hat trick, Class of 2017’s legacy

Last night, the #1 University of Denver Pioneers topped the #18 St. Cloud State Huskies, 7-2. Freshman Liam Finlay notched a hat trick and Henrik Borgström added a highlight reel goal along the way. It was nothing short of the perfect way for this program to thank the graduating Class of 2017 for their contributions to this program.

DU head coach Jim Montgomery was very pleased with the Pioneers’ performance (have I said that before?) and seems to be excited about the fact that Denver is just one win away from clinching Denver’s first-ever Penrose Cup.

Watch what he had to say after the game below:

Denver ends the regular season next weekend at Omaha. As long as they don’t get swept, they will come back to Denver with the Penrose Cup as NCHC regular season champions.
